  • A team player with an ability to get things done, a great sense of humor, and a passion for San Francisco Bay

What we offer:

  • Professional office space in the heart of downtown Oakland with easy access to BART, amazing eateries, and an extraordinary view of the Bay to inspire you
  • Experience working on our upcoming groundbreaking projects such as the first inaugural Bay Day celebration on October 1, 2016, and the campaign for Yes on Prop 67 to uphold California’s single-use plastic bag ban on the November 2016 ballot
  • Enrichment opportunities galore. Our fellows are active members of the organization and participate in a Bay restoration planting day, attend our all-staff meetings and partake in our staff appreciation events
